Lunch at The Kitchen

We love good food here at The Kitchen. Food that’s local, from the heart and downright delicious. And we love serving it in the gorgeous, light-filled space that is our restaurant with stunning views across the Park, River Esk and out to the historic Orangerie. 

Like our space, which matches traditional stonework and brick with contemporary glass and zinc, our cooking is modern and authentic. Whether you’re in need of a light bite, healthy salad, or filling burger, you’ll find something delicious to eat on our seasonal menu with a fabulous wine list to match. We have child-friendly menus plus vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options. We’re also available for private events, corporate events and weddings.

Our marvellous mains are available all day, 7 days a week. Book online or call us on 0131 322 2572. Alternatively, simply turn up and we’ll find you a table. There’s always plenty of shopping to be done in Restoration Yard if there’s a short wait. 

We love good food here at The Kitchen. Food from the heart that’s downright delicious.

Catch-up with friends, take a break from shopping in The Store or refuel after a walk. We have child-friendly menus plus vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free options.

We do accept walk-ins but would recommend booking online before your visit as we wouldn’t like you to be disappointed if we’re fully booked!
